Who knew you could do all of this with a pumpkin??

  • Use your pumpkin as a vase. Carve it out and add fresh fall flowers like mums or sunflowers.
  • Make some moisturizing body butter! Rub on skin and let sit for up to 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. Store excess in fridge.
    • 1 cup coconut oil
    • 1 cup pumpkin puree
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Roast your pumpkin seeds and flavor them with fun flavors like ranch, cinnamon & sugar or Sriracha.
  • Make dog chews. All you have to do is dehydrate the meat of the pumpkin by cutting it in thin strips and baking in a 125 F oven for up to 8 hours.
  • Got dry hair? Make hair conditioner. All’s you need is pumpkin puree, yogurt, honey and coconut oil.
  • Use smaller pie pumpkins as bowls for your next batch of chili. Hollow out the inside of the pumpkin and ladle in the soup of your choice.
  • Make french fries out of pumpkin! Just cut pumpkin in half, remove seeds, use a potato peeler to remove skin and cut into ¼ inch strips. Place on cookie sheet, dash with olive oil and desired seasonings. Roast fries for about 15 minutes on 400 F or until they are tender and desired crispiness. Yum!
